Step 1: Connect the Camera and Computer

Connect the camera and computer using any of the following methods.

Connecting via USB

Turn the camera off and connect it to the computer using the camera’s supplied USB cable. Turn the camera on once the cable is connected.

Connecting Wirelessly via a WT‑7 Wireless Transmitter

Compatible cameras can connect to computers wirelessly using optional WT‑7 wireless transmitters. You will need to connect using a host profile configured for [Camera control].

The procedure is the same as for Nikon’s Camera Control Pro 2 computer application. For more information, see the section on Camera Control Pro 2 in the documentation for the WT‑7.

Connecting Wirelessly via a WT‑6 Wireless Transmitter

The D6 can connect to the computer wirelessly via an optional WT‑6 wireless transmitter. You will need to connect using a host profile configured for [Camera control].

The procedure is the same as for Nikon’s Camera Control Pro 2 computer application. For more information, see the section on Camera Control Pro 2 in the camera Reference Manual.

Connecting Wirelessly via the Camera’s Built-in Wireless LAN (Z 9 Only)

The Z 9 can connect to the computer wirelessly using its built-in wireless LAN transceiver. You will need to connect using a host profile configured for [Camera control].

The procedure is the same as for Nikon’s Camera Control Pro 2 computer application. For more information, see the section on Camera Control Pro 2 in the camera Reference Guide.

Connecting via Ethernet

Cameras equipped with an Ethernet connector or attached to a WT‑7 can connect to the computer via an Ethernet cable. You will need to connect using a host profile configured for [Camera control].

The procedure is the same as for Nikon’s Camera Control Pro 2 computer application. Users of cameras with Ethernet connectors can refer the section on Camera Control Pro 2 in the camera Reference Guide/Reference Manual. Users of the WT‑7 can refer to the section on Camera Control Pro 2 in the supplied documentation.

Using Multiple Cameras

NX Tether can switch between multiple connected cameras. It supports up to five simultaneous connections but can control only one camera at a time.

Nikon Transfer 2 and Camera Control Pro 2

NX Tether cannot be used with Nikon Transfer 2 or Camera Control Pro 2. Close these applications before launching NX Tether.

Image Capture (macOS)

When a camera is connected via wireless LAN or Ethernet, the Image Capture application supplied with macOS will launch with the camera displayed in the [SHARED] list. Be advised that should you select the camera in Image Capture, you will not subsequently be able to connect using NX Tether.
